Growing up to the sound of my mom's sewing machine buzzing in the background, I have always enjoyed transforming fabrics and textiles into unique, functional accessories.
When I moved from my native country of Belgium to the US in 2009, I decided to join the handmade movement and turn my passion for creating and sewing into a career. Over the years, my collection of bags and accessories has matured and expanded significantly.
Today's collection features timeless and functional designs with a touch of whimsy. All items are created - from concept to finished product - in my studio in upstate New York. I'm a passionate member of the makers movement and strongly believe in the value of small-batch production with a high level of craftsmanship.
